I would absolutely recommend taking a tour with Nadia. Not only does she know Venice, its history, its art, its people, its culture, but is also one of the most enthusiastic and passionate people you will ever meet. Nadia is extremely proud of being a...More
Our private tour guide, Giorgia Stainer, was incredible! She picked up my daughter and me at our hotel and for the next three hours entertained and informed us as we walked through the cobblestone streets of Dorsoduro and San Paulo districts, as she shared tales...More
Nadia took us on a great tour city (2 hr walking +1 hr boat ride)and exposed us to the parts of the city we would've missed otherwise. Even though we have three adult kids (22, 21, 18), the children's book she brought was incredibly engaging...More
We recently visited Venice for two days with our Norwegian cruise ship. I lined up two days of private tours with Nadia for our time there. We could not have been more pleased with our experience. Nadia is personable, accommodating, and so much fun to...More
Nadia was an extremely pleasant host during our introduction to Venice tour - she kept us entertained yet relaxed - even offering us refreshments at a cafe we would never have guessed existed at the specific place we were at, at the time!

Having communicated with Nadia prior to our arrival, she customized a tour specifically to meet our needs. Two people in our party could not do long walks or climb stairs so Nadia arranged private water taxi and organized a fabulous tour. She is extremely pleasant,...More
On Day 1, Nadia explained the bases of Venice and the Venetians, which she then illustrated throughout her walking tour. We completed the visit with a boat and gained a better perspective of the city. On Day 2, we explored a different area, quiet and...More
Santa Croce gained importance as a sestiere (district) when Piazzale Roma was created in the 1930s to bring cars and buses close to the center of Venice. Constitution Bridge spans the Grand Canal linking Piazzale Roma to the train station. This area buzzes with energy from travelers and students. Historic palaces and former industrial buildings house some departments of Ca' Foscari and IUAV Architecture
universities. On the Fondaco dei Turchi, Venice's Museum of Natural History offers Venetians prehistoric thrills, plus an overview of lagoon fish and wildlife. The Grand Canal, northern boundary of Santa Croce, is lined with palaces and decorated by the tall green dome of San Simeon Piccolo. Ca' Pesaro attracts Venetians to its contemporary art exhibitions. The Grand Canal exposes only one face of these buildings. On the opposite side, the palace often interacts with a square or a busy street to represent its neighborhood identity.
